Since I returned to Turkey in January 2011, I've been lucky enough to have my performances televised and/or perform on TV four times.

The first time, I was performing in a Turkish Romany concert. It was before I felt prepared to perform Turkish Romany dance, and it was my first gig after moving to Istanbul.
The second time, I appeared on Mehmet Ali Erbil's show, and I almost missed

I have been performing in Turkey since January. It's been full of ups and downs. After three months of performing every night in Bodrum, then returning to Istanbul for the last two weeks of the Holy Month of Ramazan, during which there is nearly no work for dancers, I am looking forward to breaking the "performance fast" tonight in Cihangir. I will be performing tonight, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. On Sunday, I've got the night off, then Monday, a show on a Bosphorus cruise.
